and worst moments from hollywood's big night. jodie foster's coming-out speech and even bill clinton surprised the crowd at the golden globes. >>> obama's immigration reform, biden's violence reducing gun measures, and check out these incredible images, mother nature and all her glory. iff ful "first look" begins now. stars of tv and film turned out for the golden globes on sunday where we saw a pair of new hosts, a few surprising wins and some memorable acceptance speeches. >> reporter: good morning. ben affleck and kathryn bigelow had a lot riding on the golden globes, because they had been shut out in the oscar race, in the end it was ben affleck who won and he won big. >> the golden globe goes to -- >> it was a real thriller hostage. >> "argo." >> and argo's director, ben affleck, also won, days after being snubbed by a nomination for the academy awards. >> i don't care what the award is, when they put your name against the names she just read off, it's an extraordinary thing. >> jessica chastain won best actress for "zero dark thirty." and best actor to daniel day-lewis for "lin
decided not to do it. bill clinton used that license plate. symbolically it's an important move for people who live in washington. at the end of the day, it doesn't really change the status of washingtonians who feel they are taxed without being represented in d.c. but symbolically, something that washingtonians were looking for and he's delivering on that, made some people happy yesterday. >> carrie, great to see you. thank you. >> thanks, thomas. >>> as we await the president's announcement on gun control proposals, we asked and you answered, did the nra go too far by focusing on president obama's daughters in a new ad. k.j.l. tweets yes, this new ad is disgusting. you can be a member, want to protect second amendment rights and say no to assault weapons. from patricia, does the nra understand the magnitude of the potus' daughters being a member of the first family and what that entails? from rusty, absolutely. family members should always be off limits. we encourage you to keep the comments coming in to us on twitter or facebook. also, how does the white house now respond to the nra ad?
, for the better part of two decades. the last time west virginia and kentucky backed a democrat was bill clinton in 1996. he won west virginia by 93,000 votes and kentucky by 13,000. four years later, gore lost both states and it was a 41,000 vote gap in west virginia. more than 230,000 in kentucky. the gap got wider when john kerry lost in 2004. you see the pattern here. president obama improved on those numbers slightly in 2008, but still lost both states and his numbers fell off the table, if you will, this past november, the gap nearly doubled to 180,000 in west virginia and he lost kentucky by more than 400,000 votes. but last year, the war on coal had become a familiar theme on billboards, campaign signs and on tv. coal related donors poured more than $12 million into the campaign. 90% of it to republican, believe it or not, but to blame the president's agenda doesn't take in the bigger picture. coal production has dropped because demand is down and easily accessible coal has disappeared. low cost natural gas and fracking threatens to cut them even more. never the less, the politics of the
, to be understood deeply, and to be not so very lonely. >> and former president bill clinton surprised everyone when he came out to salute "lincoln." in the end they laughed, they cried, and, of course, the party continues. >> good night. we're going home with jody foster. >> it was a good show. it was also a good night for ben affleck who seemed genuinely shocked at both his win for best director and the win for "argo" for best drama. we'll have to see if the momentum for "argo" carries over to the oscars in the best picture race. something audiences didn't see happened back stage in the press room after "django unchained" writer and director quinton terramtino. it has come under scrutiny for its liberal use of the n-word, and terrintino was candid in his response about why he used it so much. >> if somebody is out there saying it when it comes to the word [ bleep ], that the fact that i was using it in the movie more than it was used back in the antebellum south in 1858 in mississippi, then had he might have -- then feel free to make that case, but no one is actually making that case. >> now, ther
. >> former president bill clinton has been getting more questions these days about his wife hilary's future including the 2016 presidential race and her health. >> she's always been very, very healthy and she has very low blood pressure, very low standing heart beat. i tell her she still has time to have three more husbands after me. whenever i'm stubborn about something in our contact quest at my self-improvement she refers to me as her first president. >> and a reminder that msnbc will have all day coverage monday of president obama's second inauguration. and that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. >>> now for a look at the national weather we turn to meteorologist bill karins. good morning. >> some good one liners in there. very entertaining. not fun later today. the deep south your first snow event of the season is coming your way. we have winter storm warnings in pink covering much of the state of virginia, north carolina, central alabama and central portions of mississippi. a little sliver of northern portion of georgia. you can see the movement the storm is taking. right now
actor. and it was actually introduced by none other than former president bill clinton, who just kind of a weird time in our movie culture right now. >> well, the golden globes are done by the hollywood foreign press, and they love movies about international politics. now, maybe "lincoln" was too american for them. the only award they gave was to the british actor who played abe lincoln. even movies like "salmon fishing in the yemen," which i actually saw, had to do with foreign politics. "les mis"had to do with french politics. bill clinton was a big get, even bigger than jennifer lopez. they didn't want to spring for obama, but they got a pretty good guy. he requires a lot of perks in the dressing room, i can only imagine. >> michael. >> he's a total professional. he was barely looking at the prompter. he knew his lines. he was much better than the inebriated people, like the guy pretending to be high and said lisa dunham instead of lena dunham. >> the worst was salma hayek, her prompter went down. she and the actor with her, paul rudd, they totally forgot what they were going to do
of service. hillary -- excuse me, chelsea clinton, the daughter of hillary and bill clinton, the chairman, honorary chairman of this committee. eva longoria, gospel singer yolanda adams will be here as well. a stress, focus on health, education, veterans' affairs, faith, family sbed kags. ra and education. randi? >> thank you. chris lawrence has a look at the security at the inauguration. good morning to you. >> reporter: we talked to federal officials here. they're telling us right now there are no credible security threats to disrupt the inauguration. no credible threats to disrupture the inauguration right now. what we're seeing really is pulling in help from all over the country. the country is pitching in to make sure that this inauguration goes on well. d.c. police are pulling in another 2,000 to 3,000 officers from around the country. the fbi will be helping the secret service, who is running the overall security effort. the big difference this year will be the crowd. last time, nearly 1.8 million visitors descended on the city. this time the crowd could be maybe a third of that. 6
comical and it seems ridiculous. >> bruce, you suggest an alternate strategy which is one bill clinton has talked about and colombia law professors do. which is the president should essentially say, i have the implicit authority to raise the debt ceiling without congress, correct? >> that's right. of course, i'm not a legal scholar, but i do oppose the existence of the debt limit. i even testified before the senate finance committee that we should get rid of it. i think it's a dreadful left over from ancient history that simply creates opportunities for hostage taking by congress, such as the one we're facing right now and our foreign policy, we don't negotiate with hostage takers for a very good reason and i think that we need to get rid of this debt limit. but i'm perfectly willing to go along with the trillion dollar coin, if that's what's necessary to prevent this hostage from being taken. >> so, jeff, take us through the constitutional argument here because the, as i understand it, the point would be the president would say to congress, by choosing to set taxes at a certain level and
are like bill clinton. i think that's -- just unfair. but you know, i -- feel the president's annoyance yesterday when he was talking about -- palpable. >> i hear that people tell him you don't do this enough. boy, he gets -- sort of bristles. wait a minute. >> yeah. actually they do. and they invite republicans to come to the white house and choose not to come. this whole relationship building thing, it is a would-way street. he can only offer so much. republicans eventually have to say okay, maybe we will come to one of your state i didn'ters. >> well, the -- john, so already this morning, the pushback, it is not the formal stuff where -- upset about. it is the informal outrage. >> the president has to be true to who he is. you know. >> that's who he is. >> hay is an introverted guy. maybe overstated it but -- >> quote order the record about this. >> that's right. doesn't like to back slap. at the same time, it would help, i'm sure if he was more extroverted. it will reply a role in the next four years if -- >> i want to bring up a point, mark, that jon meacham brought up which is thi
night. jodie foster's coming out speech and a surprise from bill clinton. obama's immigration reform, joe biden's violence to reduce gun measure. and new dails about will and kate's baby. mother nature in all her glory. "early today" starts right now. >>> good morning to you. i'm richard lui. stars of tv and film turned out for the golden globe awards where we saw a pair of new host, some surprising wins and memorable acceptance speeches. >> reporter: good morn
me. >> bill clinton with dr. nancy snyderman. good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington, where president obama is trying to mobilize the nation, all of us, to deal with gun violence. >> from the letter that julia wrote me, she said, i know that laws have to be passed by congress, but i beg you to try very hardly. julia, i will try very hard. >> and joining me now for our daily fix, chuck todd, nbc news chief white house correspondent and host of "the daily rundown" and host malia henderson. thank you very much, both of you. chuck, the atmosphere there at the white house as the president unveils this and the fact that he brought in families from newtown and children who had written to him, what is the white house hoping to gain as it takes on, probably, the biggest political fight of this second term? >> look, this wasn't a simple policy rollout, this was the launch of an emotional campaign, this was an emotional president, and he was using any possible tool he could have in order to try to launch a campaign, because the reality -- they know the reality of the big three proposal
what bill clinton experienced but a lot of members of congress back there today and it is groundhog day, whatever you want to call it all over again. >> yes. >> because if the 112th was the most polarizing, what do we expect out of the 113th? >> we expect it more. so one of obama's goals, we'll see if he repeats it in the inaugural address, to change the tone of washington. he couldn't do it in term one. we go in to the new congress now with exactly -- with the dynamic that you have just described tamron. >> yeah. >> the dynamic -- i apologize for interrupting, but the reaction to this president. this week we saw a senator refer to him as king obama and allegations of tyranny and impeachment and beyond ideological differences. it taps in to what i think scares some people who are in the middle who may be moderate republicans or maybe not far to the left of the most progressive. somewhere in the middle and they become afraid and worried when they hear this kind of language coming from elected leader who is are supposed to look at immigration reform, gun laws and, of course, this economy.
to when bill clinton tried it in 1993, a large majority of democrats in the house of representatives and was barely able to get anything done and now the republicans control the house of representatives and you put your finger on it, those taking additional steps, they are better organized and funded than the advocates and my best guess is most of the action here will be in the regulatory arena and the administration will look to see what they can do on their own, absent much prospect ultimately for significant legislation. >> chris: i want to broaden the conversation, because, whether the fiscal cliff or gun control, story of the day about a major immigration reform movement by the president, he seems to be, as he prepares for the inaugural, a more combative president, more confrontational, less interested even in the beginning in compromise. one, do you agree and, two, what does it say to you about prospects for his second term. >> i do and it is interesting. he was elected in by a more significant margin, notably more significant margin than he was reelected. he was not nearly the
. bush has yet to recover from his second term, including katrina, and yet, bill clinton, bounced right back after monica, or at least after he got out of office? >> and he left with high approval rating and harry truman left with a 22% approval rating and didn't see his image reva revamped until the last two decades. it happens differently for everyone. i think this administration is particularly aware of the fact that the things that will shape his legacy are outside of his control and depends on how you respond to them, like katrina. nobody was planning on two category 5 hurricanes hittings the gulf coast within a month of each other. >> the response is in your control. >> sort of true and like the event itself can be out of your control. when it came to president clinton and president bush, there are things -- your response is always, what do you decide to do is always within your control. >> and i think that's exactly how people view it too, soledad. people say look, can't help a storm. look, half of marriages end in divorce. problems in lots of marriages. how you then handle that
made bill clinton a great negotiator. he listened to find common ground. this is from the speaker of the house who worked to impeach the president. >> what's missing here, peggy? sometimes i think man nobody knows how to play the game any more, to paraphrase casey stengel when he was managing the mets. >> it's true on the hill, speakers and such don't quite control their conferences and their caucuses as they have, but the most from interesting thing that i think-- that has been true of the past few weeks, since the president was re-elected, is he's playing it in a way different from previous presidents. previous presidents get a win whether it's close or not and then they try to sort of put their arms about everybody and summon them in. we are essentially a if i felt-50 country still. so you would think the president would have spent the past few weeks going forward saying let's all be together. instead he has been very sharply, definitively "us guys versus you guys" by going at the republicans on hill, by speaking in a way that is very sour about why republicans take the stands
lbj and trying to get drinks with -- how come you're not like bill clinton and not inviting mitch mcconnell and harry reid to camp david. how come you're not like ronald reagan and throwing back whiskey with tip o'neill. it is that stuff, as you've been noting and he pointed out, he does this but i think this is where there's a little bit of disconnect. i think there are people on the outside and look at what other presidents -- and say, why don't you do this more? the white house will say, guess what, people used to say the same thing about clinton and reagan. my guess is the truth's somewhere in between. it's not exactly as if the president uses his golf game to lobby members of congress, he doesn't. not as if he has a card game once a month he's bringing over the leader. he doesn't do things like that. is that part of the job description? >> the president said at the press conference yesterday, he has played golf with john boehner, does a good golf game. it didn't help in the negotiations. boehner keeps refusing invitations to multiple state dinners. there seems to be a problem wh
. >> she will definitely have time to rest up soon. that was bill clinton, of course, speaking today in california at his second annual conference entitled health matters, activating wellness in every generation. >>> are you the king of bleeding heart who goes fishing and ends up feeling sorry for the fish? i do. >> no. i don't. well, then you can share the outrage over a video that's getting more than a nibble. cnn's jeanne moos shows us why it's going viral. >> reporter: the fish were biting, all right. biting this guy's arm. though this looks like a fish eats man story, experts say it's really a tale of man molests fish. dr. aaron adams is an official of a tarpin conservation organization. the tarpin is so legendary, michelangelo painted one chasing jonah on the sealing of the sistine chapel. this is no chapel. it's the florida keys, famous as a place to hand feed the tarpins. if this video is from robby's, management wants nothing to do with it. an angry employee told us he is truly molesting that animal. tell me what is wrong with this video. >> oh, boy. where do i start. he stu
he did, clinton about race, the welfare reform bill. people overlook a lot of things troubling. the other piece of this, melissa, this president, everything he did turned out to be about race. this is the first president that had to confront questions about his birthplace, confront witch doctor signs, people saying he was a black hitler. now the butcher of benghazi on the right. the over-the-top reaction to him that most people looked at as having a racial component. when he was elected, the right had two choices. they can react as a typical president or go absolutely insane. they chose the latter. it made african-americans overlook their anxieties about not being addressed. it made african-americans angry. it's why they showed up in large numbers. >> that, plus voter suppression. that was remarkable. you know what? i think there may be an interesting lesson from what you said about bill clinton, which those of us who are progressive have always wanted an alliance among african-americans and lower income whites who, in many cases face the same problems. if you look at the indus
"starting point." hillary clinton's political future might be uncertain but to hear her husband bill clinton tell the story, she's got a long, long time to decide. >> she's always been very, very healthy, and she has very low blood pressure, very low standing heartbeat. i tell her, you know, she's still got time to have three more husbands after me, so i think she'll live to be 120. >> secretary clinton is recovering from a blood clot in her head after a fall. >>> so, not sure how many facebook users will like this, facebook makes you fat apparently. i knew it! that according to a new study from the university of pittsburgh, researchers there say people that use sites like facebook feel so good about themselves that they lose self-control. i know, i know. >> what self-control are you losing on facebook? >> let me finish, michael. the study also finds greater social network use tends to be associated with higher bmi, body mass index, and increased binge eating. >> push away from the table. >> i don't get that. i know that sitting at your computer on facebook for hours and hours and hours migh
to be a situation like when richard nixon was vilified and history judged him fairly over time. similarly with bill clinton. presidents take on big issues that are not popular of the day but history judges them better. i think this will be one of those things that people will say, wow, that was a visionary thing to do. it wasn't popular at the time, but it was a visionary thing to do. i think history will judge him fairly. >> what do you think, though, on jobs that the president could do that would be equal to health care reform? >> i have a big idea. you've heard me talk about obama 2.0. it's all about energy. it's not about drill, baby, drill. it's about natural gas, shale oil -- these are opportunities to transform america. lots of jobs and things we need. we would be less dependent on foreign oil. i think he's going to embrace it. he's already done it, already given the approval that we can export to folks where we have free trade agreements. that's a home run for him. >> rachel, what are you seeing as being a big ticket piece of legislation the president can get passed and have be part of his
. and despite her recents health scare, bill clinton says hillary is doing great. he made a bold prediction about theo outgoing secretary of stat. >> she's always been very, very healthy and she has very low blood pressure. i tell her that she's still got time to have three more husbands after me. so i think she'll live to be 120. >> hillary clinton as you know is recovering from a blood clot in her head. >>> in englewood, california, a woman -- a man, rather, has experienced his own version of reality tv. he was watching a high speed chase on television when all of a sudden the car with the cops in hot pursuit passed right in front of him. police eventually arrested the driver. said he was only a boy although they declined to re veal his age. >>> so believe it or not, this picture you'll see tells only half the story. coming up, the bizarre train wreck caused by a cleaning lady. >>> plus extreme eating. every time you go some of the most popular restaurants in the country, and we're not talking about drive-through. we're counting calories, you will be shocked next. abetes... your doctor wi
traditional progressive approach. as for your first question, absolutely, john. hillary clinton would, in fact, keep papering over this issue, although i do think there would at least be some kind of a bill bradley-style challenge. in 2000 al gore faced a challenge from bill bradley on his left. it wouldn't be as robust as bradley was in 2000, i don't think -- and that wasn't terribly robust in 2000, but i think there would be some nominal challenge from her left that would say, you know, democrats can't go back to sort of clinton-style politics. now, given her popularity, as you mentioned, john, across demographic and across ideological lines, i think it would be fairly minimal. there would be some kind of challenge there, i believe. >> gene, jonathan just mentioned sherrod brown's sense that, you know, they weren't going to go near entitlements because entitlements, that's who the democratic party is. that's who they are. entitlements are now 20% think of federal spending. how do the democrats, the republicans, how does this country survive economically without addressing entitlements? and b
to be lofty, inspirational and unifying, if anything? >> you know, i was reading bill clinton's second inaugural where he talks about, you know, the status quo nature of government which we see today as well, that americans a americans are to turn this division the government the way it is. the petty bickering they did for big things. i think the president wants to try to talk about where he feels he can have the most impact in his second term domestically and internationally which is a huge piece, by the way. because i think his first term internationally was about coming home, was about sort of pulling america back from its projection of power. there are so many both real problems and crises but also opportunities for the president. so i think that the speech is really about where he wants to have the most impact. and i think that's how he'll be judged, and that's where people will really take notice of what he says. >> david, before you tell us who's on "meet the press" this sunday, back to the speech for just a moment. do you think there's any chance at all that the president will
